Cryogenic Laboratory

Outline

The Facility was established in 1971 for the purpose of manufacturing liquid helium and liquid nitrogen for researchers on the campus and for advanced education and research that require these freezing media.

To supply the required amount of freezing media for education and research on campus, which is the primary objective of the Facility, we installed nitrogen liquefiers and helium liquefiers. Users of such freezing media are in six departments of the Faculty of Engineering, a research center, and the Department of Education and Regional Studies.

The second objective is to execute research on solid-state properties under low temperatures and research where a strong magnetic field is applied. At present, experiments, such as NMR (nuclear magnetic resonance) of magnetic materials and ion crystals and X-band ESR (electron spin resonance), are energetically executed using liquid helium and liquid nitrogen.
